Our mission is to contribute to a sustainable future, and save you money along the way.
In 1969 Wants opened its first store under the railway bridge on union street. All those years ago, we knew we wanted to be different, we wanted our stores to be interesting and to offer a wide range of products not normally associated with second hand shops - Wants know that buying second hand is never buying second best, it's about contributing to a sustainable future, and saving you a lot of money along the way.
We have been fortunate enough to partner with some geat people along our journey who have helped turn our vision into reality. A fortunate meeting on a train led to the highly successful Gold Centre branch.
We recognise that sometimes we all need a helping hand, and WANTS delivers this throughout each of our stores.
Our ethos has always been to offer stores that stock items people want but may not be able to afford to buy new or do not want to buy new.
WANTS offers good value, good quality items at good prices and this helps us to ensure WANTS gives our customers what they want!
Our advertising said it all....”a good deal more for less”.
